Amazing what a small bitter taste of polling will do. Obama didn't like how the public perceived his chicken little act. Now the administration is "working" with the GOP. The GOP should trust but verify that this is indeed true. I for one won't hold my breath and dare to hope.

Now that the boom times have returned for Wall Street with consecutive days of record market highs, the time for excuses must end, and the Obama administration and Congress should join with the other world markets in adopting a Robin Hood tax on financial speculation.

The signs could not be more clear. The New York Times , March 3, calls this a “golden age for corporate profits,” and the financial sector is leading the gold rush. Just last year the top six U.S. banks raked in $63 billion – with Bank of America pulling in more than Walt Disney and McDonalds combined.

But it remains a different story in Main Street communities across America, a new pauper’s age would be a more apt label.

I say let it roll. those cuts won't effect any average working person. as far as the federal employees well let me see, if they need extra money there are lots of part time jobs out there. they have been on the gravy train far to long. How about a dose of reality.

This is a TYRANNICAL government that now must be abolished in order to replace it with a CONSTITUTIONAL one!!

"That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." -- Declaration of Independence

I agree with Thoughtful, I wouldn't trust the president any further than I could throw him. He does have one agenda and that has come from him being a product of his culture.

Beware of Mr. Obama and any comments he may make concerning compromise. that is NOT a word that he understands or truly cares about !!!!

Sadly, his plans follow what he wants and no one, no one will ever change his mind or modify his positions.
